At the request of health care institutions in Greater Boston, the MBTA has agreed to provide service – on all modes – until 8:00 a.m. Sunday so that medical professionals and support staff may get to their jobs prior to the worst of the storm batters.
For others considering using MBTA services tomorrow morning, please be advised that no service will be available after 8:00 a.m.
After 8:00 a.m., all modes of transit will be shut down for the remainder of the day and night.
With severe winds, heavy rain, and flooding forecast for metropolitan Boston, this decision has been made with the safety of customers and employees being the MBTA's top priority at all times. The suspension of service will also allow MBTA and MBCR personnel to concentrate all of their efforts on making sure the transit system, from subway to bus to commuter rail, is up and running at the start of Monday morning's commute.
As part of the T's strong commitment to public safety, buses will be on stand by to assist in any evacuations that may be necessary throughout the region.
The MBTA will be focused on restoring normal service as of Monday morning.
